The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    New schedule?

    I am trying to cut my workout schedule from 5 days a week to 4. I think I will put bi's and tr's with other body part days. My question is this. Would it be more benificial to put bi's with shoulders and tri's with back? I think I would rather train my bi's and tri's when they are stronger as opposed to warn down?

    Thanks

    I train my bi's with my chest and my tri's with my shoulders. Works for me.

    I just tried doing bi's with my back and I found them to be weak which I didn't like.

    If you really want to get the most out of those muscles, I wouldn't do either with back. Back training is and should be brutal. If you wanted to add something after back I would do either abs or calves. You should also train your grip with back, unless you have a vise-like grip.

    Vox I used to do back and bi's and chest and tri's and I always felt the second muscle group sufered due to the stress from the first...

    I then moved no to a shoulders and arm workout and it felt good..

    I have since mvoed back to my original b/b and c/t split and as I have cut down volume things are going great..

    I feel that putting them together is more beneficial for recovery purposes..
